South University is a wonderful environment for adult students. They understand that along with trying to better our lives, we also may have children at home.
Review South University - Columbia
I've been with South University since 2010, very close to the time I delivered my daughter. I started with online classes and they were very understanding of any time that I missed due to my newborn. Since then, it has been a difficult run, but rewarding. Yes, the college is expensive and there are teachers/staff that are not so helpful, but what college isn't like that? South University has been the most helpful college I've been to (coming from 3 different colleges). I am about to start my second degree with South, and I am excited!
South University-Columbia has a great reputation in the hospitals around the area, with the BSN graduates they produce.
